SCIENCE!

I like thread subject lines that are completely worthless.

And the answer is NO, the light is not supposed to come on until you run out of gas.

On a serious note, while the light may be on a bit early according to the fuel gauge level, it is not too far out of range. The car I currently have, while waiting for my ordered 2013 Impreza, has the low fuel light come on when the fuel level is about 3 gallons left on the tank.

I think they come from the same sensor.

I think I would trust the light more than the gauge. Normal fuel gauge will show full for a while before it drops down.

My wife says read the manual and if you don't find an answer go see the dealer.

The fuel gauge doesn't do that.

Subaru's fuel gauges move super slow. I'm not sure if the point is to get rid of the Wild swings from going up and down hills but it definitely works that way.
